Police in Borno arrest spirit who attempted to dupe victim of N2.2m The Informant247

The Borno State Police Command, on Friday, arrested a suspect who specialised in defrauding his victims by pretending to be a spirit with powers to make them wealthy.

The Informant247 gathered that nemesis caught up with the suspect, a member of a three-man gang who attempted to dupe a victim of N2.2M.

The Commissioner of Police (CP), Abdu Umar, who spoke to newsmen in Maiduguri said that the mode of operation of the gang was to deceive their victim into believing that they were in communication with a spirit who could assist them in making wealth.

According to him, the suspect and his accomplices, who are at large, contacted one Bukar Muhammed and deceived him into believing that they could assist him to be rich.

He said, “They manipulated and directed him to go and drop his Automated Teller Machine (ATM) card and the pin number at a certain location.

“The victim complied and the suspects withdrew the sum of N2.2 million from his account domiciled at TAJ Bank Plc,” Umar said.

The CP, however, said that in the course of investigation, the suspect was trailed and arrested in February, adding that he later confessed to the crime and other similar offences.
